About SGC

Club swimming on the Gold Coast has a rich history. It's origins date back to 1917 with the commencement of the Southport Swimming Club, utilising the Broadwater Baths and Pier, until 1965, where a 6 lane 50m pool was established on the current location of the Gold Coast Aquatic Centre. The beach baths at Burleigh, also allowed for the formation of the Burleigh Swim Club in 1951. This enjoyment of swimming in the worlds most idyllic location continues today with 25 clubs spread across the Gold Coast catering to the young developing swimmer fresh out of learn to swim, up to Australian Olympic Swimmers. The Gold Coast is the spiritual home of swimming in Australia.
